David Sharpe Showcase
This picture is an early showcase for David Sharpe, who was to become one of the premier stunt men of the 20th Century with feats and credits in literally hundreds of films and TV show. As a programmer, this isn't too bad a little picture either. William Berke knew what he was doing. Gertrude Messinger, Mary Kornman, Mickey Daniels were also fine in support. Look for Fred Kohler Jr. as a bad guy. David Sharpe also got story credit as well. The dance contest in the middle of the picture stops it cold for a short time, but that's a minor quible. Good location shooting in and around 30's L.A. and at the race track. Notice all the NRA and product placement advertising, now common today.
